Just wanted to re-ignite this thread with another glowing review of Jo! I found her due to this forum, so thank you EDF
Jo managed to do an amazing job fitting a pair of shorts and a dress to my troublesome body! I'm particularly impressed because she introduced seams to give the dress shape, and took my desire to have it as fitted as possible with a pinch of salt! If I had it my way, I probably wouldn't have been able to breathe in the clothes she altered, and hence would not be wearing them as much as I am now.
She was also amazing at working around a difficult work schedule, and it's great to have someone so nearby to be able to go to. She's also a lovely lady to talk to and chatting to her has made me revisit my own sewing box too.
Would definitely recommend anyone wanting anything tailored or made from scratch to reach out to her!
